Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Introduction: Clinical practice in emergency room and crisis unit is often fraught with pitfalls (Immediate demands, accelerated temporality, difficulties working with family and care network). This practice contains specific clinical therapeutic interventions based on recognized theoretical frameworks. These theoretical frameworks constitute “formal knowledge”. They help to diagnose but have got limitations. In fact, clinical competence requires also technical and interpersonal skills (“know-how”) as well as reasoning skills and clinical intuition (“Informal knowledge”). All these knowledge and skills are built over clinical experience based on trainings and supervisions, continued clinical reasoning and exchanges with colleagues. Objectives: Our research aimes to capture therapeutic processes in clinical crisis intervention by illustrating what experts really do in their clinical practice and above all, how they do. Aims: Our study illustrates several crisis situations, moment-by-moment, by analyzed experts’ voices. Method: Our method is grounded in a first person epistemology and used a qualitative methodology focused on explicitation interview. 10 crisis interviews were analyzed in a micro and macro perception. Results: Our research based on experts’ voices has identified a series of therapeutic techniques and principles who are essential to better intervene in clinical crisis intervention. A model of intervention was developed to train debutant clinician. Conclusion: We believe that reflexivity is a powerful attitude to understand and transform practices in a lasting way.
